Women who Work, Care, and Create
Throughout history, women have been excluded in virtually every field. Even when women are included, their achievements are overlooked and forgotten. Within the male-dominated art historical field, women sculptors are a rarity -- normally working in textiles, decorative and fabric art -- disregarded as a lower art form. While some women sculptors working in the “high art” form such as Edmonia Lewis, Barbara Hepworth, Beverly Pepper, Properzia de' Rossi, Ruth Asawa, and Louise Bourgeois, most of these women are not discussed enough with their male counterparts in the history of art. In the current environment we are striving to showcase our local women sculptors, their works, and their importance to the Global arts scene.
